The launch of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays at Stansted Airport means that Stansted Express customers can now enjoy even greater choice and value with 21 fantastic destinations on offer.
The Jet2 team greeted rail passengers arriving at Stansted Airport rail station yesterday (30th March) with giveaways such as beach balls, sunglasses, Frisbee, lip balms, a mini brochure and £60 ‘Rain Cheque’ voucher to promote the new holiday opportunities.
Stansted Airport becomes Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ ninth UK airport base and their first in the South of England. They will offer 21 fantastic European leisure destinations, which are on sale now – Lanzarote, Malaga, Alicante, Dubrovnik, Faro, Madeira, Fuerteventura, Girona, Crete (Heraklion), Ibiza, Kos, Larnaca, Gran Canaria, Menorca, Paphos, Majorca, Pula, Reus, Rhodes, Tenerife and Zante – giving holidaymakers across North & East London and the East of England more choice and value.
The first flights from London Stansted Airport took off on Thursday 30 March 2017 to Alicante, Faro, Majorca and Lanzarote.
Stansted Express’s Head of Commercial Development, Eleni Jordan, commented, “We look forward to welcoming Jet2.com and Jet2holidays passengers onto our services and look forward to working with Jet2 over the coming months to provide a seamless journey for our passengers from train to plane. As the fastest and most comfortable way to travel to and from the airport, with trains every 15 minutes and low advance fares from just £7 one way, recent official figures have shown that the Stansted Express is the most popular form of transport, above the coach or car.”
Stansted Express as the fastest gateway to Stansted Airport, fares now start from just £7 per person each way when booked in advance or when four people make a return journey together. Standard single fares are now only £16.60, or £28 return between London Liverpool Street and Stansted Airport.
The new fares put Stansted Express amongst the cheapest Stansted airport transport providers, while retaining a high quality service which includes fully flexible travel on any train on date of travel (and return tickets are valid for up to one month), no hidden fees, unlimited baggage allowance and free wifi.
Trains run every 15 minutes providing the fastest link between central London (47 minutes), Tottenham Hale (36 minutes) and Stansted Airport and the train station at the airport is directly under the airport terminal, just a 2-minute walk to check-in..
Best prices are always online at www.stanstedexpress.com, where there are a range of other services available such as discounted hotels, theatre and attractions booking service, for added convenience and value.
Commenting on Jet2’s launch at the airport, Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said yesterday: “We have got off to a flying start in every sense at London Stansted Airport. Customers in the region have been hearing all about Jet2.com and Jet2holidays’ family friendly ethos, great value package holidays and award-winning customer service, and today they finally get to experience all of that.”
